“Even though celebrities do have access to some resources that we don’t, the truth is that there are some simple things you can do with your personal nutrition to achieve ‘Celebrity Transformation’ – level results without the celebrity trainer, private chef, exclusive gym membership or even top-notch plastic surgeon,” the trainer told Us Weekly.

Below, he shared his tips, which included scheduling meals and when to reduce calories.

1. Get More Protein

Protein is the building blocks of muscle. It is the macronutrient that allows your body to recover from exercise and gain and maintain lean muscle. Protein is also the most satisfying macronutrient. This means that you will feel fuller for longer and consume fewer calories. To maintain as much muscle during fat loss, it is important to prioritize protein.

2. Reduce Alcohol Intake

Alcohol and weight loss goals are two things that don’t mix well. A shot of vodka can have about 100 calories. However, it is not known how alcohol can impact your metabolism. The body prefers to metabolize alcohol quickly over other nutrients that it has ingested during the day. This is similar to how the body reacts when poison is taken in. This slows down the breakdown and partitioning other nutrients within the same timeframe, increasing the likelihood that they will be stored as fat.

3. Schedule Your Meals

An efficient way to reduce overeating is to have an eating plan. You will be able to predict when your next meal or snack will be so that you can control your portion sizes and satisfy your hunger pangs. If you are eating erratically, you are more likely to overeat at any given meal because you won’t be sure when you are eating next. A schedule gives you control, mindfulness, and consistency over what you eat at different times throughout the day.

4. Learn how to read nutrition facts

A caloric deficit (also known as “calorie deficit”) is when weight loss occurs. When you eat fewer calories than you need. Tracking your calories is the only way to monitor your caloric intake. You must be able read and understand a nutritional facts sheet in order to do this. You need to be able to know how many calories, proteins, carbs and fats are in the items you’re eating and be able to put those pieces of your nutritional puzzle together accurately.

5. Don’t Cut Calories Too Drastically

This is a common error in diet culture. This is a common mistake in diet culture. People cut calories to a point that it actually hurts their metabolism rather than boosting it. A successful weight loss program is not about rapid weight loss or starvation. It’s about eating the right foods in the right amounts. Although starvation may result in a quick loss of weight, it is not sustainable and can lead to weight gain. You need to make lifestyle changes that are sustainable over time. Your results will only be as good as your lifestyle changes are.
